The Realization of the Real

“Sugar”, also known as “False Pleasure” had the whole world eating out of her hand. Her sister “Joy”, had been abducted by an evil fortune teller when she was a baby, so without “Joy” in her life, “Sugar” had no recourse but to be who she was. 

“Sugar’s” personality was man-made – a product of having been conformed to the world, even a product of words thought to have been life-words, but in reality were death-words.

“Sugar” had not been born in “Eden”, as her sister “Joy” had been. She had been born in a forlorn, little town called “Deprivation” on the outskirts of “Hell”. It was her destiny to be one who seduced others, poisoning them little by little UNTIL a prince would come with deep, penetrating eyes whose look would set her soul on fire… purifying fire… holy fire… righteous fire that would consume her fleshly desire and change her name/nature to “Utter Contentment”…even “Peace That Passes Understanding”.

Like a worm passing each day doing its own thing, she spent her days eating sugar consuming it’s poison not realizing the effects on her body, the temple of God.

A shout came from heaven that was like thunder having the power to shake the ground under her feet –“When your heart returns to the Lord – when evil desire is recognized for what it is –THEN your prince shall come!” it proclaimed. 

Poor wretched “Sugar” – She had been born with the evil desire- She was the desire itself. How could she change?

Trembling, she cried out: “I don’t know how to change! Help me!”

“You have already begun”, the still small voice within spoke, bringing back to her mind that the one who trembles at God’s Word is the one who finds the “Way”.

“Eat my flesh, drink my blood and BE what you cannot be in your self-ruling nature!”…”Do this in remembrance of me” were words that “Sugar” had forgotten. She had made those words a ritual that had no life, but now in the “Day of His Power”, she remembered them and was endued with grace and authority to change.

“Sugar”- You shall no longer be “Sugar”… “Peace” come forth!” she proclaimed, and in that moment her prince came. She beheld Him in her heart taking form within her as her very being. 

Words, like a surprise birthday party with delight and celebration, came flowing powerfully and effortlessly out of her mouth: “I am He! I am He!”-

“Shiloh” had come!
